We have finally encountered a day of sunshine here in Vermont! Like many of you, we've been swinging from 90-degree weather to 50-degree weather, complete with April or October-like deluges. Our trusty wellies have been given an unseasonable workout!

How to keep two little girls entertained on a garden tour?

May 17, 2011

There has been so much wonderful work done in the garden. The gourd and sweet pea trellises have been built and installed by Winslow, pansies have been planted in abundance by Marjorie, and the weeding has been done with diligence by Jenna. How exciting!

Red efts are a familiar sight in New England in muddy, soggy spring, but the first glance of one brings excitement indeed! I tweeted two weeks ago that the Red Efts were crossing, as they make the journey from the muddy woods to the ponds. The Tudor family has long known this is a sure sign of spring, one of nature's many clues to us that winter will soon be banished for a few months of glorious Vermont summer.

'Twas the Night Before Easter and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
The Easter eggs were hung on the willow tree with care, 
In hopes that the Easter Bunny soon would be there....

We've been busy-busy bunnies here at the Rookery working on our special, handmade Easter eggs that will be going on sale this week (tomorrow, we hope!).
